Kansas City Wide Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Have you been injured on the job in the Kansas City area? Is so, then you should speak with a workers’ compensation attorney. Do not trust that your employer or their insurer will do the right thing. More than likely they will attempt to get you to settle for far less than a on the job injury of your type is worth.
Under the law, the employer has the right to decide where to send you for treatment. Consequently, the employer will likely send you to a doctor that will recommend the most conservative treatment possible. The most conservative treatment possible usually involves the cheapest and slowest treatment available. This can be a long and drawn out process for the employer.
Eventually, the employer’s doctor will determine that an employee has reached maximum medical improvement and issue a workers’ compensation rating. This rating is more than likely going to be on the low side, which is to the benefit of the employer. This is because compensation under the workers’ compensation law is directly correlated to how high a disability rating is.
Also, some employers use doctors that only give impairment ratings, which is a different type of rating and is always lower than a workers’ compensation rating. That is why it is important to get a lawyer involved in your case to make sure you are getting the right treatment and ratings. Your work comp attorney will order all your medical records and more than likely decide to send you for an independent medical evaluation by a doctor that is connected to your employer. That way you will be sure to have at least two medical opinions concerning your condition.

Kansas City Metro Truck Crashes
There have been, this summer, several fiery truck crashes around the metro area. There can be many causes of truck crashes, but one that is often overlooked is the failure of other drivers to recognize that trucks behave differently, under various driving conditions, then do smaller vehicles.
A truck takes a lot longer to slow down than a small car. Consequently, many accidents could be avoided if this fact was realized and acted upon by all drivers. Pictures and videos of some of the most recent trucking accidents in the Kansas City Metro appear to indicate they occurred in construction zones. Construction zones present a number of problems beyond the danger of injuring or killing a highway worker. For instance, the right away can be hard to determine in a construction zone. Also, there may be no safe area to pull over in a construction zone. Further, an accident that occurs in a construction zone, may create a situation where additional vehicles become involved in the accident, because those vehicles have nowhere to go except forward. That is why it is important to keep a careful look out and to make sure that you leave sufficient distance between you and the vehicle in front of you to allow for emergency stops.
